Am I Allowed to Ride My Bicycle on The Sidewalk?

YES. However, sidewalks are also typically shared with pedestrians, skate boarders, parents with baby strollers. The bicyclist has all the rights and duties applicable to a pedestrian under the same circumstances. A bicyclist must yield the right of way to any pedestrian and give an audible signal before overtaking and passing the pedestrian-so use that bell. You can bicycle on the sidewalk either going with or against traffic.
